American Photography 24

December 21, 2008

Two images from my series Social Obligations were chosen for American Photography 24. The images are from different social events that I had to attend for one reason or another. I’m fascinated by gender roles and power plays.

If you are in Phoenix or Tucson look for my photos in the January/February issues of both Phoenix Home & Garden Magazine and The Valley Guide. PH&G features a story on 93 year old artist Rose Cabat who won international recognition (her work is in MOMA) for her small ceramic vessels called “feelies”. For The Valley Guide, my husband Jason and I were subjeted to far too many delicious pastries for a story on bakeries. I had a stomach ache by the second bakery (every pastry chef INSISTED we sample their wares), but Jason managed to plug along and down every offered confection as my long suffering model.
